It's Tuesday, and it's Mardi Gras! In place of our usual Mini-concert/Jam session we (T-Acadie) are offering a Cajun music concert/session with our friend Mitch Reed. Originally from Scott, LA, Mitch has played with many Cajun bands, including Charivari and Beausoleil. Mitch moved to Maine a few years ago, and we are thrilled that he can join us for Mardi Gras!
You can join us by going to Pam's FB page (www.facebook.com/pam.weeks.73). If you don't see the video right away, scroll down to the news feed and it should be the top post.
NOTE THE TIME CHANGE! We usually start our jams earlier, but to accommodate Mitch's schedule on Tuesday we are starting later and will be streaming from 317 Community Music Center in Yarmouth, Maine.
All sessions are free, but tips are very much appreciated. Tipjar: Venmo @fiddlerpam (phone -7296) paypal.me/whippoorwillmusic or reach out to Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are not currently offering house concerts due to the pandemic. However, you can join us every Tuesday evening at 6:45pm on Pam's FaceBook page for our weekly mini-concert/intermediate jam session - all instruments welcome! Easy tunes are played up to speed, more challenging ones are played at a lazy pace at first, then a little faster. Requests encouraged! All sessions are free, but tips are very much appreciated.

Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen, each well-known and loved for their decades of music making, have spent well over a decade in a joyful musical collaboration. Cindy is a superb singer, guitarist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Grey is one of America’s finest players of the Irish flute and tin whistle, as well as an accomplished singer and concertina, fiddle, piano and harmonium player. As composers each contributes to the unique tapestry of contemporary folk and world music as it flourishes in the US today. Together, they weave songs and tunes of vibrant color and rich texture. Their music is remarkable for its vibrant colors and intricate textures, rewarding the listener with a level of nuance and craftsmanship often compared to that of fine chamber music. The duo’s repertoire includes Cindy’s sparkling original songs, distinctive settings of traditional Irish music, Scandinavian fiddle duets, old-time fiddle and guitar tunes from southern Indiana, and new music that Cindy and Grey are inventing together. There is plenty of variety and breadth of musical territory here, all deeply rooted in folk traditions, and interwoven with the renaissance and baroque counterpoint in which both Cindy and Grey, coincidentally, were immersed while growing up. Included are vocal duets, guitar, Irish flute, Irish alto flute, tin whistle, concertina, harmonium, and duet fiddling, and plenty of stories that put the music into a personal context. In 2007, they released their widely-praised first duo recording, Cross the Water. In 2010, they produced a single, and YouTube video, Back When We Were All Machines, a playful, humorous look at the serious subject of our modern paradox of human connection and disconnection. In 2015, they released their second full-length CD, Welcome Day.
